Early Childhood Education (ECE) professionals who did not submit their information during the initial phase of the Special Initiative for Janssen, Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID-19 Vaccine will have the opportunity to register during a second survey collection phase that will be open until 5:00 pm on Friday, March 19, 2021. Information from providers who submitted their registration request during the first phase of the Initiative has been shared with the retail pharmacy partners.

To better understand the vaccine needs, OCDEL is requesting ECE Directors complete the OCDEL Survey of Immunization Needs.

ECE professionals who would like to submit a registration request for the vaccine, should click here.

The intent of the Special Initiative is to provide the J&J vaccine to professionals working in Federal Head Start, Early Head Start Grantees, Early Intervention Providers, Home Visiting/Family Support Providers, Family/Relative Providers, Unlicensed Private/Faith-based Preschools, Private Nursery Schools and Certified Child Care Programs.

Please feel free to share this information with colleagues working within these programs across the commonwealth.
